On Sunday StarNow and The Wellington Actors Studio held their first Industry Information Evening in Wellington. The event was sold out and it was both an informative and fun evening.
Comments from actors who attended Actors 101
"Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Actors 101 on Sunday. It was really helpful and a great environment to be able to ask questions and meet people. Thanks so much for putting it on and please do more!" Francesca.
"Thank you for organizing the Sunday event at the Paramount, it was very useful and I gained a lot of information. I am so appreciative of your efforts and of the Star Now team, I am very impressed. I now realize there is much work for me to do just to get started" Pani.
Be proactive and get involved in student films. Casting Directors watch these films to find new talent. Make sure you have a recent headshot and if you change your look get a new one! Going away? Inform your agent so they don't submit you for an audition you can't attend. Try and practice what you do everyday. Keep training and gaining more experience. Casting Directors look to see who is taking courses and up-skilling. Know your lines and be confident and friendly when you attend an audition. Don't be arrogant or doubt yourself. You have been chosen to attend that audition for a reason so believe in yourself. Choose an agent that you like, it's important to have a good relationship with your agent.
After issuing a discussion challenge on the StarNow facebook page last week, we were thrilled to see some fabulous industry related topics being discussed by our members.
Georgina Duthy contributed some excellent discussion questions and was extremely active in other discussions as well. For this reason we are happy to award her with a free six month membership on StarNow!
